Giantinthemoonlite wins Belmont feature

NEW YORK (AP) Giantinthemoonlite splashed through the rain and the wind Friday to win the $62,000 allowance feature for New York breds at Belmont Park.

Ridden by Javier Castellano for trainer Bruce Brown, the 4-year-old gelding beat True Bet by 3 1/4 lengths, running 6 1/2 furlongs on the sloppy track in 1:17.46.

The 8/5 favorite paid $5.40, $3.40 and $2.50 for his first win in six tries this season and second in 12 starts overall.

True Bet returned $5.40 and $3.40, and David Rocks paid $3.40 to show.
